Big Picture: Skydivers
DVD Copied by Thomas Gideon - Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. U.S. Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). Skydiving...a leap from two miles up...a descent at 120 miles an hour...this is routine for members of the U.S. Army Parachute Team--champions in competition and combat. In this issue of THE BIG PICTURE, through an unusual helmet camera technique U.S. Army skydivers demonstrate daring, free-fall skills which have thrilled international audiences. This 30-minute documentary film is a tribute to an elite corps of paratroops and their contribution to military airborne techniques.
